This is a recent photo of my helmet. While it isn't exactly what you are looking for, I think this technique would work.
I went to a store that sells fabric and sewing supplies and bought a piece of Felt. Felt is highly absorbent, I replaced the stock sweat-band with a homemade Felt one. The piece of Felt only cost 35 cents, and this is cut down, only one third the piece.
A bandana would work, but I have a feeling that Felt is more absorbent. The stock pads that come with the helmet are Felt.
I use a MC helmet liner in the winter, but cut down* and the neck-protector taped to the back and sides of my helmet.
*I must have a big head, I have the largest helmet I could find, but I can't fit the MC helmet liner under it.
In the winter, I cover all the vents with clear packing tape.
