Dreams Related To Cleaning

Cleaning for women

For women and those who identify as female, the act of cleaning is usually considered a positive, hopeful image. It suggests you would improve your relationships with those closest to you in reality, namely your family members. Your connection with your partner or your significant other may grow deeper during this time, and your children, if you have them, would be well-behaved and angelic.

Watching someone cleaning

Watching someone else clean and tidy up during the course of a dream vision reveals that you tend to use others in order to accomplish your own selfish goals. Rather than stepping in and doing the work yourself, you let others take care of the tasks and projects you should be doing yourself, likely with no thought of thanking or compensating them for their effort.

Cleaning by taking away garbage

Taking garbage outside or to a dump in a dream often means you would be faced with difficult times in the near future. Most likely this would be due to lack of money or cash with which to sustain yourself and your loved ones.

Cleaning inside the house of someone you know

Cleaning the inside of a house that belongs to someone you know in reality can be interpreted as a sign that you are getting closer to that man or woman in reality. If you were cleaning by yourself or on your own, it means you have some knowledge or experience that you can give to this individual, likely in the form of friendly advice. If your were working side by side with this person, however, it means your two personalities complement each other quite nicely. You may be able to start a hobby together or get involved in a special project.

Cleaning a public area

Cleaning a public space in the dream world, such as a park or government building, is generally considered a positive dream symbol, although the exact interpretation depends on the manner in which you were cleaning. For example, using a tool like a broom or a mop means you would be able to overcome the current challenges or roadblocks that stand in your way. On the other hand, picking up trash with your bare hands may mean that you would only be able to get rid of or avoid those who annoy you in reality.

Someone helping while cleaning

In the context of a dream vision, getting help while you are cleaning or tidying up can reveal that your current ideas or plans would need the help and co-operation of individuals with the same vision as yourself. If you do not already have such men and women in your life, you may want to start looking for possible candidates.

Cleaning your own house

Cleaning your own house during the course of a dream vision, such as vacuuming the carpets or washing the windows, means you subconsciously desire to be free of some conflict or disagreement within your own family unit. For example, if you are currently fighting with a parent, spouse or child, you probably just want to let bygones be bygones rather than continue to bicker pointlessly.

Cleaning floors inside your house

Cleaning the floors of your house, be it sweeping, vacuuming or mopping, means you tend to behave irresponsibly, especially when it comes to your job. Co-workers and superiors may be unable to depend on you to give good feedback or even show up to your shift on time.

Cleaning at night

Cleaning under the cover of night or cleaning in secret suggests you aim to give assistance to others without being recognized or compensated for your help, meaning you are a humble and helpful person. It also predicts making good progress on any new project you choose to begin or meeting like-minded individuals who desire the same satisfaction from their work as you do. In either case, you would be very pleased and satisfied.

Cleaning bathroom

Cleaning the bathroom may reveal that you would unexpectedly have to care for a sick relative. Cleaning in this case may actually refer to having to feed or bathe this individual depending on how ill they actually are. Your mood while you are cleaning the restroom may also give more context. If you were happy, the sickness may not be serious or it may pass quickly. On the other hand, feeling upset or stressed could mean a prolonged period of care, causing you much stress and anxiety.

Cleaning as part of renovations

Doing some cleaning and tidying up as part of a series of renovations in your dream often predicts an upcoming period of time or situation where you would have to make a serious, final decision. This may have something to do with a project at work or a relationship you are currently a part of. If you were happy or pleased with the results of your efforts in the dream, it means you would choose the right path for yourself and be at peace.

If you felt disappointed or frustrated with the results of your cleaning efforts and the renovations, it suggests your mind would be clouded with doubt. You would probably have second thoughts about the path you chose, and you find there would be many roadblocks in your path to making things right once again.

Cleaning by putting things in a closet

Cleaning things up by putting them in a closet, such as hanging clothes or putting away boxes, means you would soon get confirmation that your suspicions about someone else in reality would soon be proved completely correct. However, rather than feeling justified or smug, you would only feel disappointment.

Cleaning by putting scattered things away

Cleaning things up by picking up random, scattered items around the house, such as toys on the floor or bathroom products on a counter, means family matters may become rather complicated for you in the future. Your current or future children may have a disagreement with you that leads to a huge fight or misunderstanding.

Cleaning and organizing

To clean and organize in your dream is a prescient symbol of unexpected guests or turn of events. The specifics of the dream scenario will inform you regarding the aspect of your life where this surprising thing will occur. For example, if you are doing your household chores, then you might expect to bump into relatives or long-lost friends. This is your subconscious mentally preparing you for that situation. On the other hand, organizing implies slacking off. Perhaps you are putting off important tasks and your mind is trying to enlighten you about the negative consequences of laziness or inaction.

Cleaning a house resembling a museum

The act of cleaning a house that seems to resemble a museum means you have a desire to accomplish something great or truly spectacular in your lifetime. You want to chase after your dreams and make them a reality. You may also be attempting to impress or astonish some influential or powerful individuals who are known to you in reality, be they within your group of friends or not.

Seeing the progress of cleaning

Seeing and recognizing progress in your cleaning process is often considered a very auspicious symbol in the realm of dreams. It means you would be able to overcome challenges that pop up in your path and brush unimportant distractions out of your way. It can also reveal a drive to develop yourself professionally, as well as the personal satisfaction and monetary compensation that comes with it.

Cleaning using water

Cleaning with water, such as washing a counter or mopping the floors, may reveal that the atmosphere and harmonious energy of your home would somehow worsen or become unbalanced. This could lead to more conflicts than normal or higher levels of tension than you are used to.

Cleaning a house of a stranger

Cleaning a stranger's house during the course of a dream vision is often considered a symbolic representation of your own inconsistency in your actions. This is especially true if the stranger was watching you while you worked. Perhaps you are not clear on what you should be doing and thus act out of emotion rather than logical processing. Alternatively, you may not take your life seriously and just make each decision as it comes to you rather than considering what might benefit you years down the road.

Pleased with the results of cleaning

Finding that you are pleased or satisfied with the results of your effort to clean during a dream vision is considered a positive image. It suggests you would be able to slow down and relax a little in reality, giving you time to show love and attention to family members or allowing you to indulge in a favorite hobby or two.

Cleaning your house of belongings

Cleaning out your house of unwanted belongings means you would soon have to deal with budding rumors about your personal life. Alternatively, you might be challenged or thwarted in your efforts to accomplish your goals, causing you to feel frustrated and at odds with others in reality.

Cleaning by hiding things out of sight

Cleaning a room by sweeping dirt under a rug or shoving things out of sight in a closet could reveal that you would soon be involved in a complicated situation. You may get stuck between a rock and a hard place if you are not careful.

Being in charge of cleaning

Finding that you are in charge of a cleaning operation, such as being the leader of a team of cleaners, means you subconsciously desire to take control of some task at work or at home. You believe you have the skills and knowledge necessary to micromanage a project and bring it to success. If you were cleaning alongside your team it suggests you would thrive in your career and make great strides in your profession. Ordering others around or supervising them instead of helping, however, points toward a tendency to boss others around and put your own selfish goals above the needs of the group.

Cleaning by putting things in your pockets

Tidying up a desk or bag by putting little items into your pockets could reveal that your schedule is about to get busier because you would be dealing with a family party of some type. There may soon be a new addition to your family through marriage or birth which requires celebrating and merry making for the foreseeable future.

Cleaning by putting things in the attic

Trying to clean by storing boxes up in the attic usually means you have some big plans or lofty ambitions that have inspired you to ask for help, advice or permission from someone else. However, this vision may also be warning you that if you actually want to accomplish these goals, you should pay a little more attention to your own abilities and available resources rather than other people's input.

Disliking cleaning

Having a particular dislike for cleaning while in the dream realm, such as when someone else asked or ordered you to clean something, suggests you are not the best or most valued member of your household or family unit. You probably contribute very little, and it is likely that you tend to cause conflict and inflict your negative energy on others. While your family may still love and support you, taking care of you is taking its toll on them. You might consider trying to be a more productive member of the family or at least lift the other members up rather than bringing them down.

Cleaning the table after dinner

Clearing the dirty plates off of a table after dinner has been eaten may be interpreted as a sign of upcoming periods of sadness and disappointment. You may soon get some bad news or be filled with apathy after something did not go your way.

Not cleaning when needed

Seeing that something needs to be cleaned but not doing anything about it during the vision is an ill omen to perceive in the dream world. It is often considered a sign of upcoming difficulties in reality. You would find yourself greatly disappointed or frustrated by the circumstances you find yourself in.

Cleaning after people from the past

I was living in an apartment with a mature couple that I knew from many years ago and I was upset that I had to clean behind them and their dog.

This dream is filled with symbolic imagery connected to relationships. The first major sign is finding that you live in the house of an older couple. This type of home, possibly filled with the possessions they have accumulated over the years, indicates the need to reconnect with someone from your past. In some cases, this may require reconciliation and forgiveness, even if the party in the wrong is not ready. It may be good to apologize even if whatever happened was not your fault at all. Cleaning up the house, despite your annoyance at having to do so, further supports this idea of bringing two people back together, representing physically cleaning your home and mentally preparing your heart to receive this person after being apart for so long.

Cleaning someone else's house

In the context of a dream vision, cleaning someone else's abode reveals your personal tendency to do other people's work for them. However, it is also probable that you would receive compensation for your efforts, including the appreciation of those you helped or some money to pay for your time, labor or resources.

Cleaning someone's place and disliking it

Cleaning someone else's house but being unhappy or annoyed about it reveals that you are carrying some great disappointment or anger towards someone else in reality. Perhaps you feel betrayed by an old friend and are unable to move on from those feelings. Another possible interpretation links this symbol with hard work and excruciating effort on tasks or projects that your heart is not really into. You would feel a lot of frustration and resentment in this case because your efforts would be toward a goal that you do not even believe in. Finally, in some situations this symbol predicts being treated as a scapegoat or ostracized from the community you once called home.

Cleaning at sister's house

I dreamed I was at my sister's house, she wanted me to clean her house. I was going to, but she wanted a spring cleaning, too much to do and it was really dirty and dusty. I wiped behind her bed, and it was full of dust, dust everywhere. I told her I could not do it as it was too much work, for too little money.

Dreaming about cleaning your sister's house alludes to soon running into or inviting over someone you have not seen in a long time. This individual may have once been a friend or colleague, but it has been months if not years since you have last spoken. The dusty state of the house means things are not as they should be, suggesting that your one time friend may not be who they once presented themselves to be. You probably tend to look for the best in people and have overlooked some of the warning signs that this man or woman could be a danger. The bed you clean behind of represents something bad happening to someone you are close to or intimate with, such as a lover or best friend. You may want to be on the lookout to see if the sudden arrival of your long-lost companion sparks any undesirable changes.
