Opinions:
Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Malik, Shafi and HanafiIt is pure and purifying (can be used for ablution).Based on many traditions that Prophet used to wash away major ritual impurities along with his wives using the same utensil. For instance, the hadith of Aisha

There is no distinction between bathing at the same time or bathing with surplus left by other.
AhmadIt is NOT permitted even if they commence at the same timePerhaps the only tradition that reached them was of hadith of Al-Ghifari and hence they made analogy for a man, from the case of the women
Others:
Ibn HazmWoman can use the leftover of a man, but not vice versa. Both can do together.Based on the hadith of Al-Ghifari and Aisha
They can't use each other's leftovers, but can share one bucket of water (start at same time).
