Numbers on Remote?

Hello Everyone, I have this New Vizio Tv Remote and after you use a remote the numbers start to wear away. Is there any way to protect this from happening. Sooner or later they wear off and you don't know what you are pressing and have to get a new remote. Any idea's? Thank You

Not really a fix but by the time the numbers/letters wear off of my remotes I know where the buttons are without looking at them.

Too late for this remote but painting clear nail polish over the numbers can make them last longer.

But you will have to do a test on an unimportant button to be sure that the nail polish does not turn the number (or the button itself ) into a melted blob.

You could tightly wrap plastic wrap around the keypad.

They sell clear nail polish, I assume it's sold where the rest of the nail polish is.

Thanks I see they say nail polish clear will not hurt the plastic, but don't know how long it will protect the numbered buttons.
I just wrapped the front of the remote with plastic wrap, had to make sure it was Tight. so far so good. See what happens til i can get some clear nail polish.
