Write an update statement to remove double-quotes and carriage-return, line-feeds out of a columns data.

--I thought this would work to remove the carriage-returns, line feeds but get a
--ora-01722:invalid number error where the datatype for column1 is varchar2(50).
Update mytable
set column1 = replace(column1, chr(13) + chr(10), '')

--tried for removing the double-quotes and did not remove them.
Update mytable
set column1 = replace(column1, '"', '')

Using Oracle 11g
