To prevent creases in garments hung on hangers, take an empty paper towel tube and make a cut lengthwise. Slip it over the bottom of the hanger. The round edge prevents a crease.

Hanging your jerseys and jumpers on a coat hanger can cause them to stretch or put 'dents' in the shoulders.

I have two brand-new cardigans, 65% rayon/35% nylon, which I've had hanging on padded hangers for a month. Now that I'd like to wear them, they both have "bumps" on the shoulders from the hanger ends. How can I get them out? I've tried washing and drying flat, but they're still there! Thanks very much.
What I have done with t-shirts and sweat shirts is when I get them on I wet my hands and rub them over the hanger humps, sometimes I have to do this several times, but it kind of works like ironing them would work. I finally splurged and bought a set of those suede looking hangers that they sell on one of the shopping networks.
Thanks for your response, "redhatterb". I had my sweaters on highly-padded hangers, thinking in advance that those would be better than other hangers. I have a feeling that the rayon/nylon mix causes the sweaters to have these permanent-like bumps. I'll try your idea of wetting the bumps when I put on one of the sweaters; maybe that will work!
You might take them to a dry cleaners and see if they will just steam the bumps out for you.
I had some shear curtains once that I just couldn't iron out the wrinkles.
I hang my items inside out.
