Lu

Looks like 床利, but that doesn't make sense. 'Bed advantage'?

Thanks for the replies, I think it might say “bed component” which makes sense for what I need to know it for

I meant a component part of the first character! As written, it does say "bed" as Lu pointed out, with an extra 木 component it would be a different character, 麻, which makes a recognised word in combination with the other character which looks like 利.

 Is it written on a piece of fabric like a cover slip then? Can't think of any part of a bed that's known as a 床利, but there is the homophone 床笠 which means a mattress cover. Is that a possibility? The latter character of the second word is a bit rarer and the person may have written it wrong.

Ah yes that makes sense! Where I work I was putting out duvet covers, they come packed in a box and there was a random piece of cardboard inside the box with that writing on it, so I was curious as to what it said :)
