sed -i.bak 's/ / /g' textfile

The above replaces all occurrences of the string in all lines with a space instead of deleting it.
Additionally, it will create a backup file "textfile.bak" before applying the changes to "textfile".

The above will work, but it will replace every occurance of   in the file with a space.

Do you want to replace every one, or just one in a particular line?
