brake fluid on tires???

i changed the front calipers on my moms grand cherokee the other day and once i had the brake line off of the old caliper i wanted to quickly put it on the new one with out running the master cylinder dry so i put the old one down right next to me which happened to be on the tire i had laying next to the jeep...

when i was putting the tires back on i saw there was brake fluid from the old caliper on the side wall of the tire, but it was now dark out and i just wanted to be done so i was like forget it, i'll clean it tomorrow morning. morning came and i forgot, and i didnt get around to cleaning it off till the morning after, a day and a half after the brake fluid got on the tire... there is now a semi-noticable stain where the fluid was

long story short, will this cause major damage to the tire, to the point where it is unsafe to drive? i have heard of people using brake fluid as tire dressing back in the day before, not that i would ever do this but since people use to actually use it as dressing, then a little spill that i cleaned off two days later shouldn't do damage, right?

Did they recently quit selling keyboards with a 'Shift' and/or 'Caps Lock' key?

I've never heard of brake fluid doing damage to a tire, I think you will be fine.
