Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

When some type of washing occurs in a dream, you are cleansing or clearing out something that no longer serves you.

The primary symbolic meaning for any kind of bathing connects to this desire to be clean and available for social interaction with others. This can connect to unconscious feelings of dirtiness that are both literal and metaphorical. There may be ways in which you are feeling unclean and in need of purification. Anything that involves water in a dream is going to connect somehow to issues of emotions. Using water to bathe might point to a need or desire to immerse yourself in the realm of your feelings in order to cleanse yourself of the pain that life sometimes brings.

If you wash yourself in dreams it means you need to “cleanse” certain aspects of your personality, since you harbor feelings of guilt. On the contrary, these images could also mean that matters that are worrying you are beginning to clear up. An important detail: if you are washing clothes or a personal item, it is your emotional and intimate relationships that require cleaning.

If you wash dishes, it indicates spiritual purity that nourishes you.

If you was someone else, it shows your desire for that person to heal. (See WATER)

To wash clothes or rags of white linen is a very promising dram. To wash yourself is also a good omen, as long as it is with clear, clean water. Stained clothing, however, predicts bad luck.

If you dream of hanging up washing, it suggests that you are allowing change to come into your life, as well as letting other people see your new attitudes.
