We need a stoichiometric equation......

#HCl(aq) + NaOH(aq) rarr NaCl(aq) + H_2O(l)#

This is simply an acid-base or neutralization reaction. And, these are generally represented as...............

#"Acid + Base"rarr"Salt +Water"#.

In the given reaction, you have a solution that is stoichiometric in sodium chloride. Wait long enuff, and the water will evaporate to give your salt, #"NaCl."#
