water under winter mats
The first winter I had my new Outback, I discovered that water from melting snow on my left shoe would end up under the winter floor mat, instead of being captured by the winter mat.
The mat doesn't cover the rubber foot pad on the left side, snow melts due to the warm air blowing on your feet, and the water runs down the pad and into the carpet UNDER the mat.
My solution has been to put a piece of a towel under the edges of the mat and on top of the foot pad. The melting snow is mostly caught in the towel, and dries off later. Any that soaks in under the mat in the towel wicks back out later and evaporates.
Not a pretty solution, but it works OK.
Maybe this is the source of your moisture in the cabin.
