Sanatizing it often causes its own problems including losing things like spaces, or having a ridiculous regex that depends on knowing what the user intends on inputting. For example are we going to sanitize for "? Well what about “ or ❝ ?

The solution you've come up with is the old programming problem:

' a programmer has a problem that they solve with regex, now they have 2 problems '

I don't necessarily agree with their solution but it can be easy to see how they came to it. 🐐 here is an unsanitized goat.
