Suggest you check and see if you are getting any water leaks in the footwell areas as damp carpets will always lead to condensation.

Other thing worth doing, especially in the UK is to clean all the inside glass on your car every 6 months or so. Plastics used in interior trim give off vapours and these tend to form an invisible sticky film on the inside of all glass particularly the windscreen. I cured recent condensation problems on my wife's 1997 Honda Civic by doing this. Best method I've found is to use a very hot wet cloth and then use either newspaper or paper towels to dry it off. Makes a big difference.

If you want to be really lazy then just turn your a/c on with the temperature turned up. The a/c de-humidifies the air so it removes all the condensation in seconds.

The post from Brent was also correct, make sure your air recirculation is set to off.
