How do I avoid holster wear on blued handguns?

My grandfather used to wipe his guns down with a cold blue solution,,,
They always had that deep blue factory new look,,,
Even the oldest of his handguns.

I have some very nice blued revolvers,,,
I like to wear them in lined leather holsters at the range,,,
I worry that they will start to show wear on the barrel and cylinder.

Would wiping them down with cold blue help?
How often can/may/should I do this, if at all?
Would I need to clean the metal with anything (to remove oil) before I wiped the metal?

I'm clueless here and would really appreciate knowledgeable advice.

Thanks gentlemen,,,
