That's condensation. The cheap fix is identify sources of moisture and stop them. eg) if you are venting the dryer inside the house, stop that and vent it to the outside.

Another source is a vent-free fireplace. The combustion process produces a lot of water. In vented firelplaces, the moisture goes up the chimney.

A more expensive fix would be to insulate the walls.
