I guess, You have to be careful with chemical's and ant's but I think that a sponge is OK to use.

I did some research on these sponges, but wasn’t really able to find out much information about what’s in them that makes them antibacterial. If some sort of chemical is used to kill the bacteria then I wouldn’t use for your ants since you don’t know if the chemicals are also harmful to insects.
