To further Tom's suggestion, there are solar powered exhaust window  
fans on the market which fit into the window frame for the rear  
windows well (and are adjustable width to block the small height they  
consume, so rain can't be driven in normally). They won't work nearly  
as fast as a proper blower and a dry day by itself, but are viable to  
continue the process while parked at work, etc.

Also, you may want to consider a product called DampRid. I don't know  
if it's marketed across the country, but it's available at any  
Walmart/Target/grocery store/etc here in Florida. Basically, silicate  
in a basket that sits over a bucket (the outside of the counter). Pop  
a few of them open and set them in the car, and they will dry out the  
air, drawing the remaining moisture out of the fabric via the air  
(note: I would expect how well it works to be directly proportional  
to the temp of the interior of the car, because that dictates how  
much moisture the air can carry as humidity).
