Need some help, got a bit of a wet mess....

While I would love to say I spent yesterday evening traversing a swollen river, the truth of the matter is that I left my window rolled down last night and it poured. I feel I have most of the carpet cleaned up (I realize I could pull the carpet out, but it's not so easy to get out and in in the newer models).

However, it's the seat that I am worried about. I've dried as much water as I can, and it's mostly the side that is still wet, and I'm sure the foam below is saturated.

What can I do??? My jeep is my daily driver, and I don't want it to smell like an old moldy basement.

Someone suggested cranking the heater on high and leaving the car running for an hour or so. They seemed to think that would work. I thought about a carpet blower, but getting it positioned could take some work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I used the blower when I soaked my entire jeep. Worked like a charm

Stick a dehumidifier in there. it'll pull out a lot of moisture, also lift up the carpeting.

Is it still raining? If not leave the doors off/open and let it air dry. They should dry quickly.

Open all the windows and put a box fan in there pointed on the seat from the pass side
