Why jam sandwiches end up on the jam side


It happens. A glass falls over, tomato sauce sticks to the wall and the famous jam sandwich lands on the floor. When the whole family is together, things can quickly go wrong. It's good to know that the consequences of such accidents can be cleaned up just as quickly on the right surface.


Deal with any mess: tiles made of porcelain stoneware

Ceramic tiles are fired at high temperatures of up to 1,200 degrees and therefore have an extremely dense surface that is virtually impermeable. To further enhance this property, Villeroy & Boch porcelain tiles ensures they repel dirt and stains even better. Thanks to VilbostonePlus, just wipe the dirt with water and an appropriate cleaning agent to deal with any dirt. It's no wonder that tiles are used everywhere in healthcare because of their hygienic advantages: They are robust enough to withstand daily contact with disinfectants and cleaning agents without any problems.


Hygienically clean: Cleaning with water and the appropriate cleaning agent is enough.

Feel-good factor included

There are many other reasons why families in particular often choose tiles for their ecologically compatible floors. The natural product contains no harmful substances, does not emit any chemical vapours and is therefore so harmless that it is suitable for both small children and allergy sufferers.

Another plus in terms of material: unlike many other types of covering, ceramic is particularly durable. This guarantees long life without any loss of quality. Once an indestructible tile floor has actually had its long life, it can be easily recycled in many cases. Depending on the laying materials and procedure, the old tiles can simply become new tiles again according to the cradle-to-cradle principle. Whether as floor tiles or wall tiles, according to individual taste, in a sophisticated look and a wide variety of designs.


The Curse of the Jam Bread


The fact that most jam sandwiches actually end up on the jam side has nothing to do with fate but with physics. As a rule, the accident happens as follows: The slice of bread is on a table. If it now receives a knock, for example, it slowly slides over the edge, tilts downwards, falls and starts to turn forwards in the course of its flight. Due to the average table height of 75 cm, it only manages a 180 degree turn: it lands upside down with the jam side down. If it were to fall from a standing table, from about 120 cm to the ground, it could rotate completely and land unharmed. An experiment that is best carried out only in rooms with easy-to-clean tiled floors.
