I'm having trouble staying alseep at night because of pressure from my nasal turbinates. I am trying to make my breathing better at night by applying the Breathe Right nose strips across the front of my nose, but they don't stick very well and soon fall off. My wife has no problem getting them to stick, but for some reason I can't. Any ideas on how to solve this?

Rub your nose with rubbing alcohol before you put the stripe on to get the oil off your nose. You wife has dryer skin then you.

@eScotty,
I have looked at the packaging and wondered about the same thing.

Amigo's right. It's all about how dry your skin is.

@eScotty,
How about sticking two Penne pastas up your nose? Bet ya can scare the hell out of the cat.

Wash your nose well with soap and water and then alcohol. Put the strip on and hold with your thumb and finger for at least a minute.

Gorilla Glue or epoxy resin might be more efficient.

@tsarstepan,
But is it cost effective vis a vis a wall board screw?
