the washer fluid you added should not mix with the brake fluid and sit on top of the brake fluidif the brake pedal feels good it should be fine to get to the local repair shop for then to change the brake fluid and flush the brake system out for youif you feel the brake pedal go lower when driving or go down very low do NOT drive this carbut a small ride to the repair shop with the brake pedal feeling good the car should be fine to get to the repair shop
