Why "ke", not "kou", for "your"?

Maybe it would work with both ke and kou, but it seems to line up with such sentences as "e palaki I ka niho" - Brush (your) teeth... it seems to me that certain directive phrases that advise general practices carry an objective "You do X" mindset.

Since it is clothing, "your" is implied. You can still use kou if you like.
