fine window screen might work, but remember something too filtering might restrict air flow

you can always use paper towels. but it might restrict airflow so i wouldn't use the heavy bounty types but maybe the store brand.

edit:
duh forgot about this stuff.

they have this foam filter stuff that is thinner than that in the picture. they usually use it as a cushion padding in like steel breifcases. i acutally cut some and put it on my carburetor on my car.

I have one of those and it works pretty well.

If you wanted to make something you could always use pantyhose. It won't restrict the airflow.
