Unhappy pwr. strng. fluid in brake resevoir--help please!!

1990 300E 3.0

In the process of bleeding the brakes, the one of us that was not under the car filled the main cylinder resevoir (from the slightly below the "min." mark to even with the "max" mark.) with ATF instead of brake fluid. The brakes were not applied at all when the ATF was in there and it was in there for about fifteen minutes while I tore apart the kitchen trying to find the baster I removed it with. The cd manual has me scared out of my freakin skull that I may have to replace everything but the kitchen sink.

Just how screwed am I?
