Dust Ruffles or Bed Skirts are those hanging half bed sheets or mattresses which cover the Bed bottom from all four corners and can be left as it is until one makes up the bed. One sleeps between the two bed sheets. Blankets, comforters, and other bed covers are then placed on top of the second bed sheet in western communities. The purpose of a fitted bottom sheet is to keep it from slipping off the mattress while the bed is in use.
A particular way of folding and tucking while making the bed is called as “hospital corners,” is sometimes used when the bottom sheet is flat rather than fitted. It is called upon as such because usually Bed skirts are like knee length drape of the bed and catch dust and other foreign particles of the floor therefore a color that could match with the color of the dust doesn’t sound so awkward whereas `White` colored sheets may look unhygienic and dirty (Filthy).
Satin or Silk Dust ruffles never get dirty as the dust doesn’t last on the cloth and are completely washable in a washing machine. `Solid Wood Stacking Bed Risers` provides airy and spacious space underneath a bed with risers placed upon in all the four directions of a bed.
