Filter floss

I was cleaning up and some across some Web vent filters and was wondering if I would be able to use them as filter floss?

I know it's an odd question, but no one has any information?

Why not just use pillow stuffing material? I can't say that vent filters would hurt but I imagine the pillow stuffing would be cheaper.

This was the response I got from the email:

"Web Vent Filters are made of virtually 100% polyester. The product contains no fiberglass."

Yeah it seems like it would be fine...but without really knowing to much about it I'm hesitant to say it's safe for someone elses fish. If our roles were reversed I'd use it.
