How to interpret your (appliance) dreams

After months of writing about appliance news, events, quips and quirks it’s no wonder I have the odd appliance dream.

The washing machine is yet to chase me down the road but there have been cases of the ‘too traumatic to untangle vacuum hose‘ and ‘the never ending wet washing basket‘ to make me wonder: is my subconscious saying I shouldn’t vacuum any more (please, let it be so), and, is it time to invest in a dryer?

What do these subliminal signals mean? How do I interpret these dreams…and what about you? Ever had a recurring burnt toast nightmare?

And so…to the internet!

Vacuum cleaner dreams…

Ah, your life sucks. Nah just kidding!

Vacuum dreams can be interpreted two ways: that there is a vacuum, as in a space in your life; or the cleaning version.

The former might suggest a lack of substance, an emptiness, perhaps loneliness. The latter means a loss of control, of feeling sucked up by some problem, but that you’re keeping up appearances!

Or look at this way, it’s time to stop freaking out, putting off the unavoidable, and clean up your act!

Refrigerator dreams…

An open door represents cold emotions and that perhaps it’s time to warm up to a situation or someone.

It can also mean that it’s time to put an idea or a plan on hold, on ice. Or, perhaps you have accomplished something that your subconscious was seeking, so now you can chill out.

Stove tops and cooking dreams…

Cooking and food prep is all about physical, emotional, mental and spiritual nourishment and inspiration.

It incites ideas of motherly love, nurturing, devotion and family as well as creativity and the process of a project.

Washing machine dreams…

Time for a fresh start? Washing machine dreams can suggest that it’s time for reaching closure, reparation and then releasing, so we can start over.

Perhaps it’s the reparation of a relationship, or making amends for negative actions. So ‘cleaning up after yourself’ is about taking responsibility and accepting the consequences.

If the ‘washing machine’ is broken, take your head out and fix it.

Air conditioner dreams…

Are about control in your life, your environment and your atmosphere.

Is life feeling stuffy? Suffering suffocation? It’s time to let some fresh air in for big breaths, sustenance, survival and energy.

Feel light and airy, fluid, flexible and adaptable.

It may also be about expectations, when there are none, there is only air.

Kettle dreams…

Hello, the mundane life of a kettle. Or, are you taking things for granted?

A kettle of boiling water also means a lot of hard work ahead and if it’s whistling then there’s a good chance you’ve reached boiling point and whatever is bugging you needs to be sorted out, before it boils over.

Barbeque dreams…

We can’t seem to go wrong with barbeques, when we’re awake they are a great time and even in our dreams they represent togetherness, relaxation and ease.

Having once had to sit on the washing machine to stop it from bouncing into oblivion, Keri is today delighted with the new (smoother running) technologies that make housework easier every day. A self-confessed lazy-bones, Keri seeks out quirky inventions that ease the human workload, such as the robotic vacuum cleaner (wow). And as soon as someone figures out a Jetsons-like self-cleaning house, she will happily lay her pen to rest and retire from appliance journalism. Until then, her pick is a fridge that will tell her smartphone when it's time to pick up more beer on the way home. Magic.

  1. I cannot remember if I ever had a dream about a specific appliance but this is hugely interesting. People usually tend to dream about other people, place or situation haven’t heard about anyone dreaming about, say, their washing machine. But I guess that is bound to happen if this is the kind of field you work in. I mean, when I worked for a telecommunication company before I dreamed about radioactive monster phones.I think it was due to stress at work.
