Put the top back on with the windows up so it gets nice and hot inside. Let it sit like that for a day or two.

Wait until it is nice and hot out on a sunny day and remove everything to let it dry out.

You are not worthy of owning a jeep. Sell it.

Pull the drain plugs and park it in the sun with the top down/doors off

Done it too many times.

Quick note keep a couple of garbage bags in the glove box so you can drive it with wet seats.

The "sauna method" eh?

Mine gets soaked regularly since I put that silly Bestop halftop on. All the seams on the flat surface leak like crazy and I get up to 1/2" on the floor in the back where the seat used to be.
I'm seriously thinking of buying a new full soft top.

I usually just open the back and the windows and let it sit in the sun or I drive my truck and let it sit in the pole barn and air out.
