Neutralisation of Picric acid

From:Mike Kirby

A question for the chemistry boffins...

I have been informed that picric acid can be neutralised by the addition of
either a salt solution (normal saline) or 5% Sodium Hydroxide.

True, or am I liable to end up splattered against the walls of the lab?
