Yes, you COULD do it that way...
the problem being that the brake system does not contaminate the fluid, and holds a lot more of the fluid, so you would be swapping out a lot more fluid.

Better to get and install the Clutch Fluid Reservoir Separator, bleed the clutch, install a remote bleeder, replace the fluid with DOT4.

I use the Valvoline brand. I've had no problems. I have a separate resavoir. I change it about once a month. It's cheap enough and easy enough to do. Beats sitting around the house, when I can mess with the car. Lol
