Default Why does my white shirts discolor while being pressed?

When pressing the white shirts they get a yellowish tint to them. Especially if we have to do multiple colors on the same shirt. Any help would be appreciated.

No it was set at 350 degrees. However it seem to pick up the color from the shirt I did before.

I use parchment/cooking paper, very cheap, available in every store and protects everything from marking and can be thrown out.
