Tell us what’s happening:

What is a hint to pass the challenge? At the moment it gives me an error.

Your code so far

function cleanInputString(str) {
const regex = str.replace(/[±\s]/g, “”);
return str.replace(/[±\s]/g, “”);


The challenge seed code and/or your solution exceeded the maximum length we can port over from the challenge.

You will need to take an additional step here so the code you wrote presents in an easy to read format.

Please copy/paste all the editor code showing in the challenge from where you just linked.

Replace these two sentences with your copied code.
Please leave the ``` line above and the ``` line below,
because they allow your code to properly format in the post.

Hey @Coder9523
Just pass the regex variable you have to the .replace()method

Happy coding

Similar to this @opudoprince ?

function cleanInputString(str) {
const regex = /[±\s]/g;

or like this?

function cleanInputString(str) {

const regex = /[±\s]/g;

return str.replace(regex, “”);


The second one but remove the quote marks
