Cool salt corrosion

Anyone have any experience with salt "corrosion" on some of the brackets..etc? don't want to replace it I don't have to. Any recommendations on a good wash to make sure the salt is neutralized? Just got bike for project last night. Nothing on body / paint but on brackets on the bottom.

Thanks....

Are you sure it's salt corrosion,or just the aluminum is oxidizing from not being taken care of? If it is on any of the aluminum you may have to sand and then polish.
