Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: General notes on brake fluid

  Note
Only use new brake fluid conforming to VW standard (VW 501 14).
Brake fluid is poisonous. Also due to its corrosive effect brake fluid must not come into contact with paintwork.
Brake fluid is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs moisture from the ambient air and should therefore always be stored in air-tight containers.
Rinse off spilled brake fluid using plenty of water.
