A friend of mine (who has jelly fingered kids) showed me a great trick. He took his newly acquired remotes down to a friend at Blockbuster and they heat shrinkwrapped them. The very thin plastic layer didn't interfere with its operation but sealed it from dust and ****...and helped prevent the legends from rubbing off. Worked great.
Do you really need to be able to read the label for each button on the remote? I use my remote mostly by feel, not sight, and if I need to look at the remote, I still don't need to read the labels because it's kind of obvious what each button is for based on its location.
Also, how much are new peanut remote anyway? I did not think they were that expensive if you really need one with legible labels.
