Again, I've got to emphasize. There is no such thing as "unsafe data". Merely "data used unsafely". So a hypothetical sanitize routine could at best be written as:
sub sanitize { die "If you had to call me, you've lost already"; }
You must fix the behavior of your code, not wrestle your data to the floor.
