Nope, contamination has ruined all the rubber seals in the system. You must replace master cylinder, caliper, proportioning valve, brake hoses, wheel cylinders, anything with rubber in it.

The issue is the other fluids swell all rubber seals and you will loose your brakes. Till there is a failure and you loose your brakes.
