Remove characters like  from synopsis in Catalog

When I create a catalog and view the created csv file, often times the book description includes special characters. Example is:

Example 1
A mother desperate for the truth. A daughter hiding a terrible secret.Melanie OakÂ*appeared to have the perfect.

Example 2
This is friends-to-lovers romance…but it's in the science-fiction story line where Cole really shines

Example 3
Alicia worries that her young daughter Jenny's summer will be

How do I solve this? There are times I use the csv to read the desc, specifically on my phone etc.

Thanks so much in advance.

Make sure whatever you are using to read the CSV files, reads them using the UTF-8 character encoding, which is what calibre generates.
