You would not bring to dry cleaners just any shirt or shorts; you would bring them your finest and most expensive wear. It is because of the great care that they take in making sure that your clothes are clean, that they have a dream meaning that is all their own.
A dream about the dry cleaners means you are trying to erase something from your past. The dry cleaners is the place that you go when you need to get rid of some spill or stain or something that appeared on your clothing and have no trace of it showing anymore. This is something that can be done through the miracle of modern science. Yet it also means that you are getting rid of something, you are avoiding the truth behind something that once happened to you. If you have a dream in which you go to the dry cleaners it means that not only are you trying to forget something, but you are trying to erase it as if it never happened in the first place.
A dream where you take your clothes to the dry cleaners can also mean that you want someone else to help you take care of your life. Your clothes represent important articles of yours, in other words, delicate matters, and you want to be able to involve someone else. You hope that they’ll be able to help you in your time of need and work through any issues with you.
