As well as the method mentioned in the replies above, you can also 
do this with 'col':

cat file | col -bx > tmp.txt && mv tmp.txt file

One annoying feature of this though is it changes tabs to spaces.

Yet another way is to do a global search/replace in vim:
(note this is ctrl-v-m, not ^(caret symbol) m!)

There are a lot of other ways too :)
