I'm not sure I would recommend this process.

Apart from the fun you'll have if that person accidentally starts the car, you are far more likely to damage the motor and electronics if they are energized and in operation than if the vehicle is off.

If the TB is disconnected, you will not damage it by manually opening the plate to clean it...many have cleaned the TB in this way without problems.
