It's impossible to get rid of artefacts by a bad recording. You need
hardware, a so called pop filter [1] and a compressor when recording
vocals, but the compressor is less used for the p-issue, it's more
effective against the s-issue.
It's impossible to make the "cornered" signal as "round" as expected, so
you'll always hear distortion.
