It rained--my sunroof was open

Unbelievable and I feel like an idiot. Awesome 2013 Grand Cherokee Overland that I just bought. I'm in Florida, went out last night, forgot to close the sunroof. Wake up this morning and it's raining. I dried off the seats and the console with a towel. I'm thinking about buying a dehumidifier and letting it run in the car with the heat on. Any thoughts on this? I'm stressing out that my baby is gonna smell like mildew or mold or something now!?

My mom did the same thing to her car this past summer. She dried the water up then aired it out. It doesn't smell any different and no weird mold growing. I think the dehumidifier would be a good idea to make sure you got out as much moisture as possible.

I did it to my Dad's King Ranch... he wasnt amused.

Granted it was warm in mid summer, but i grabbed a large industrial fan from work and had it hitting the seats for a few hours per side. Lots of air dried them right up.. and they looked like they were shampoo'd.
