Delete Records After 24H

Hello Experts,

I have a MSSQL 2008 DB, with a varchar field that has a value like 3/21/2011 1:19:33 PM On this field i'm also able to use convert(datetime, fldPostedDateTime, 101).

My question is, with this info, how can i add a WHERE clause to check if 24 hours have past?

Thanks.
