How do I get rid of live vocals with plosives?

What can I use instead of a pop filter?
A sock can work as a pop filter and save you some money because you can use one that you already have around the house. The trick is that you need a thin sock that won’t drown out your voice. If you use one that is too thick, you may find that you need to speak louder to get the microphone to pick up on your voice.
