It will help remove the salt. There is a tricky line where removing salt and introducing a electrolyte (said water) could seem counterproductive. Fact is, the water will splash out, evap, etc sooner than the salt will bounce/fall out and therefore is still a better bet to wash often.

Plus, fairly clean water (free of too many contaminents) is a lot less corrosive than salt. A reason to sometimes visit the newer (read; uses filters, newer pipes, etc) carwash versus the old, rundown cheap one.
