Will these sponges be safe?

I've spent a lot on fish stuff recently so I was trying to save a few dollars on cleaning sponges. I found these at Walmart for $2. They don't have a smell to them and I'm pretty sure sponges with extra cleaners are in sealed bags.

I want to use them for cleaning the glass and baffling my filter.

look on the back very carefully. When I went to buy sponges, all of them were marked somewhere, sometimes in VERY small lettering, that they were not aquarium safe. it will say something like "NOT FOR AQUARIUM USE" or something. If it does not, try googling the brand and aquarium use and see what you get.

Also, if it says it has any cleaning chemicals/enhancers of any kind on it, it is not safe.

I can't find any info online, but there is no mention of chemicals on the package and there is no warnings about aquarium use.
