The Car Wash that did this should detail the inside of your car. Have the Manager come smell the inside of the car and ask him what he would do.

If you can't trust this car wash go to another one or your Dealer and get their opinion.

The car must be dried out to get the smell out. Leave your doors and sunroof wide open, the sunroof tilted open is not letting that much air exchange to dry your car. Buy a cheap 2' high floor fan from Walmart and have it blow air through the car, this will help dry it out. Moving dry air through your car will pick up the moisture. If it is raining outside then this won't work that well of course.

I had my heater core leak on one of my cars in the past and it filled up the passenger side foot area with an inch of water. I used a fan to blow air through my car with the doors wide open. My car smelled weird for a while and I even had green mold in that area of my carpet (I did not drive my car that much and did not know it leaked until a few days later), but after I dried it out, cleaned it and used some Febreeze the smell was gone. I had hot sunny days in Texas to assist with the drying.
