Cheap vodka or star san have both worked great.

Starsan. I already have it. I am too frugal to buy cheap vodka and way too frugal to use good vodka in an airlock.

I use starsan just because I have it around when I am moving wort to the fermenter, otherwise water. The starsan is because I am too lazy to go and get water from the tap... Even properly sanitized there are going to be more bugs in the fermenter than that little bit of water that MIGHT get sucked back. Also people have used water to top off without sanitizing the water without problems.
