Default Remove plates to polish them?

I was watchng JSAs video on polishng plates and she said to unmount the plate to the boot. Why is that? Would it be bad if i didnt remove the plate from the boot?

Polishing can be a real messy operation.Pulling the plates makes it easier to polish them properly. Easier to handle, and you will not be getting any smutz on your boots.

I would not even consider attempting to polish plates that were mounted.
