Line from the hardware store?

So please forgive me, I am super new, I have got a 13 ft Flying Junior that I picked up real cheap and would like to sail real cheap. I would like to replace a few of the lines on the boat, the halyards seem fine, but I need a mainsheet, maybe a vang, and a probably jib sheet. Lowes sells line on a roll that to my untrained eye looks just like the stuff they sell at westmarine or whatever, just cheaper. is there any reason that wont work for dingy sailing?
