The "chemicals" that absorb water are usually just silica sand. I bet 
if you sprinkle that stuff on the floor, you'll make a mess.

I think in this case, evaporation is your friend. You could speed 
things up by parking the car in a heated garage, in the sun, or by 
using a space heater. If you opt for the space heater, make sure it's 
set up in a safe manner. Anything combustible (includes most parts of 
the car) should be a safe distance away from the space heater (read 
the instructions that came with the heater). Make sure the space 
heater is secured so it doesn't topple over and catch your car on 
fire. Regardless of which method you use, leave the windows cracked 
open so the water vapor can escape.
