Brake fluid in power steering resevoir (advice needed)

Hey guys, I know I made a dumb mistake, but for some unknown reason I put brake fluid on my power steering reservoir.

I noticed that the viscosity is pretty close between the power steering fluid and the brake fluid, do you think it will be a problem?

Flush it or you'll doing more than just picking up a bottle of P/S fluid.

Haha thanks guys! I actually didn't put brake fluid in the power steering resevoir, lol I just thought the brake fluid reservoir was for the power steering. (I thought this because there was a smaller reservoir closest to the driver side door that said to fill with brake fluid.
Problems solved. I don't have to take an extra trip after all!
