Exclamation Fog light problem...help

I have a '96 w/stock rectangle foglights. The lights have condensation inside of them. The problem is that they are sealed(or should be) and I am looking for some ideas of how to fix them.
I would like to keep the lights and not replace them with aftermarket. Thanks.................

The lamps have a vent tube on the back of them... water can theoretically get in, but it was designed to let the moisture out. The blow dryer trick should work, as would leaving the lights on for awhile.

Take them off overnight. If you've got an air conditioner, put them in front of it. AC takes the water out of the air and it would help to dry them out.
OR put them on the heater vent over night.
OR run them through the dishwasher. That hot water will air dry pretty quickly.
