So, I'm making a DIY filter and it needs sponges. I bought a Publix utility sponge. Would that work or dose it contain harmful things.

You need to check with the manufacturer or see if they have a safety sheet. Most of these are not porous enough to let the water flow through them (compared to aquarium media). I would just find generic filter media to use as it will be cheaper than the branded stuff and safer than other options.
