Salt water stock saturation

My brother's collection of firearms was damaged by salt water during hurricane Sandy. We sprayed WD40 on the metal parts as soon as possible upon returning to his home so extensive rust damage was stopped.

Wood stocks are another story. Is there a method for removing salt from wood stocks? A few stocks have minor swelling while others have no swelling. Swelling is diminishing as the wood dries but I know salt remains. Considering soaking the stocks in fresh water with a drop or two of liquid detergent added.

Suggestions are appreciated.
