Technically speaking, NOTHING will "neutralize" the salts in corrosive priming residue because they are, like table salt, a stable compound.

Water DISSOLVES the salts and flushes them away.

Russian cleaning kits often contained a two-compartment bottle.

One side held a strong alkaline and water solution, and the other side held oil.

The alkaline and water solution removed both the primer residue and any residual oil from the bore.

Here's some more information on the Moisin Nagant style cleaning kit: http://parallaxscurioandrelicfirearm...t-Information-
