Default Wrong antifreeze harmful?

I let a cold front sneek up on me, and waited until the last minute to check the fluid levels in my Frontier. It was after sundown, and under a flashlight beam, mistook the blue fluid for green. I added about a quart of green, and realized the mistake the next morning. Will this cause any problems? Thanks.

so what happened? was the blue fluid washer fluid?

if you added green (coolant) to the washer fluid reservoir, the coolant will smear allover your windshield. remove the reservoir, rinse it with water, then put new washer fluid in it

if you mixed blue coolant with green coolant, i have no idea. you can Google it and see if they can mix, blue coolant isnt that common
