Take a paper respirator and remove those flimsy stretch bands off. Replace them with a more sturdy elastic band from a pair of old suspenders, or you can get 1/2 to 3/4 wide elastic band material from a sewing store. Cut the bands to your desired length and then staple the new bands on to the respirator. I've saved a lot of respirators doing this.
