To dream of a clothes iron represents an attempt to perfect yourself or remove flaws. Orderliness. You may be practicing something or cleaning up a rough copy of work project. “Ironing out the wrinkles” of something in your life. You may be trying to make sure something is in order before you present it to others. Alternatively, it may symbolize self-improvement with serious effort. A wish to be perfectly presentable. Perfect confidence in your preparations. Practice that makes you perfect. Molding or practicing for an expert appearance.
Negatively, a clothes iron may represent too much concern with appearances to perfectly impress someone else. You or someone else that is too serious about perfect appearances. Low self-esteem that drives you to try too hard to be perfect for someone else. Dislike for having to practice or prepare for something that requires a perfect appearance.
To dream of ironing a dress may reflect a wish to appear perfectly compliant or co-operative for someone else. Emphasis being placed on the importance of appearing perfectly compliant.
To dream of burning your hands on a clothes iron represents feelings of embarrassment for trying to hard to perfect your appearance. Feeling stupid for interfering or pressuring someone too much to be perfectly presentable.
Example: A woman dreamed of seeing people using clothes irons in a room and walking away from the room. In waking life she was unemployed and didn’t like spending too much time on the training and preparations required to get a new job. She felt it required too much effort from her to be perfect.
