buy yourself enough scotch-brite steel scourers that your folks used to use to scrub pots and pans clean... Pull them apart and loosely fill the catch can with that - it will 'filter' the vapour and give enough surface area for the vapour to hit and allow the oil particles to come out of suspension in the air.

As mentioned before - you only need it if you have blowby - which means bigger issues with you motor any way.
