You want that CO2 to be able to get out during the active fermentation....a towel works pretty good to keep out stuff, yet easy to remove to punch the cap and stir...

I do my open fermentations by putting an empty airlock in the lid and just letting the lid rest loosely on the bucket. Every day for the first 7 days of fermentation I stir with a degassing whip for 2 minutes using a drill to drive off CO2. It really helps the fermentation.
