If you have lots of objects and dont need the transparency you can lay over a white square over your artwork and put transparency to saturation mode. Thi de saturates the color entirely you can now use transparency to bring the saturation back. You can do the same per layer with applying extra fill with the same idea in a layers effect, YMMV.

You could also script this.
