According to Codex wp_filter_nohtml_kses( $data ) should only strip all of the HTML in the content. But it also escapes single quotes in plain text.


        $filtered_string = wp_filter_nohtml_kses(  "You're not allowed to do this!" );
        echo $filtered_string;

The above will output:

You\'re not allowed to do this!
