Preparation of Specimens is one of the important technique in the investigation study of parasites infection and this process is complicated so this study deals with staining and preservation of tapeworm's specimens(Moniezia expansa adult worm) and preserve other parasite's eggs (Diphyllobothrium latum and Toxocara canis) by using a simple method and inexpensive, available, non toxic, unharmed and locally produced material (Natural Date Vinegar).The results showed that the Natural Date Vinegar had the ability to preserve eggs specimens that were used in the study (100 %) ; it also showed that the Natural Date Vinegar had the ability to stain and preserve about (75%) of tapeworm's specimens which kept their shape and their internal structure after 6 years from preparation and they were compared with other specimens stained by Aceto Carmin which their internal structure appeared unclearly after the same period of time .
