Does anyone have ideas about how to make breath-rite strips myself?
All I need is the right adhesive and a suggestion about what the right
plastic is and where to buy it. That's all, LOL.
I don't have major problems breathing, but sometimes I think
breath-rite strips would help while running and other exercising, and
even for sleeping. There is NO doubt that when I inhale strongly
through my nose, the passage on each side narrows substantially.
IIRC, they were not expensive but not cheap, and I'm not good at
moderation, and I think if I started using them, I would want to use
one or more a day. The cost would mount up.

No, that's not how they work.
They are thin springy plastic, dogbone shaped strips, and one is used
at a time and it sticks to the outside of your nose.
Look at http://www.breatheright.com/ and you can see a picture of
these things on the top of almost every box, and you can see them on
the noses of the sleeping people, especiallly the guy. Totally
outside the nose.
The whole secret is the glue.
Since that error is so common, I've wondered if it was really correct.
I've looked in a lot of dictionaries and never found one where
"breath" spells breathe. What is your source for that information?
So it is surprising to you the manufacturer managed to <correctly>
spell it in a context that everyone can understand. Yet somehow - you
think the name of the product should be intentionally misspelled.
Based on observation, I think there are a lot more product names that
are misspelled than spelled correctly, so as to face fewer
difficulties enforcing a trademark, iiuc. There are many many
examples, such as all those products that use the syllable "rite".
Just a guess: maybe this is less of a problem with a two-word name.
